Jailbroken device users are no stranger to Activator and its various uses for performing actions using custom gestures set by the user, but an iOS developer by the name of H3xept is moving things in a bold new direction with a new jailbreak tweak called Moove.

As the name implies, this tweak uses motion gestures to perform actions; and no, they're no overly complicated and you won't look like an idiot flailing your iPhone around in the air.

Moove makes it so that by simply tilting your device after doing something, an action will occur. The tweak currently supports:

  • Killing the most recently-used application
  • Killing all applications from the App Switcher
  • Killing all applications when locking your device
  • Clearing all notifications from your Lock Screen
  • Keeping the Music application from being killed when music is playing
  • Blacklisting applications that you never want killed by the tweak


To kill all applications from the App Switcher, you can just open your App Switcher and tilt your device down and you'll notice the applications are all closed from the App Switcher the next moment you look at your device. Killing your most recently-used application is as closing the application and then tilting your device (you'll notice it's not in the App Switcher anymore when you open the App Switcher afterwards). Shaking your device while on the Lock Screen will even hide all of your notifications from the Lock Screen.

Moove uses your gyroscope and accelerometer to detect movement and perform actions, and the developer touts "unnoticeable" battery usage.

The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can control the tweak's sensitivity and options:



Here you can enable or disable the tweak on demand, configure the X, Y, and Z axises for the sensors, and even test your calibration to make sure it's as sensitive as you want it to be. You can also configure your application-killing settings and Lock Screen notification clearing settings to your liking so you can use the tweak in as comfortable of a way as possible.

Because of the limited options that Moove has at this point in time, it's more of a novelty than anything else. But there is great potential for this tweak to grow and become almost a motion-based Activator. If you're interested in giving Moove a try, it's available right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for 99. iOS 8 is required to install Moove.
